My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This profile is a work in progress, as is its owner. I don't expect either to ever be finished.

I majored in Philosophy so I could work with computers. Like most of college, it made more sense at the time.

I'm foreign. Regardless of where you are from.

I can climb rocks, run up walls, pick locks, and throw people three times my weight. At least, I used to be able to.

I recently realized I have a Bacon Number of 4.

I believe that love is an illusion, albeit a very convincing one. So convincing that it will probably fool me again at some point.

I once had a drinking buddy I called Anakin.
Because he killed all the yuenglings.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My occupation is "Adventurer", but my childhood lied to me about how well that pays, so I dabble in some other things here and there.

I have most recently worked as a web programmer and am currently working on setting up practice as a clinical hypnotist.

I have done game development in the past and want to again. I worked on some games you may have heard of or even played.

Eventually I want to publish a few papers or possibly books, and then get a PhD in Philosophy. Maybe not in that order, who knows? Life is an ongoing surprise.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Long-winded rambling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Seems like a lot of people like to comment on my accent. I like to change the subject by asking them where their own accent comes from. This confuses some people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm awful at ranking things! I reserve the right to have this section be completely non-representative of my tastes. So there.

Books: Kierkegaard's Works Of Love, Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov, Harry Frankfurt's On Bullshit, Eddings's Belgariad, Asimov's Stuff, Matthew Stover's Overworld series, Author's Book (why is this section even formatted this way?), Les Miserables, One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Movies: My actual favourite movies can be readily guessed. They're the same ones you usually see on a fairly mainstream profile with a slightly geeky lean. I feel like including that canonical list will tell you nothing about me, even though it would be accurate. So instead, here is a list of movies I think I probably like more than most people do. It doesn't mean I like some obscure movie better than Inception, necessarily, just that I want to distinguish between IMDB's Top 250 Movies and Stuff *I* Like. Hopefully that does what I intend and doesn't come across as too pretentious. Not that any of these are super obscure anyway. Anyway, here's the list as far as it occurs to me right now:

Safety Not Guaranteed, Big Fish, Garden State, The Marine, Synecdoche, NY, Starship Troopers, Wreck-It Ralph, Liberal Arts

TV Shows: Firefly, Doctor Who, Torchwood, House, Death Note, Dollhouse, Avatar: The Last Airbender, QI, Castle, Wonderfalls, Friendship is Magic, Breaking Bad

Food: Chipotle burritos. Lasagna. Pad Thai. Chicken Tikka Massala. I can cook pretty decent approximations of all of those.

I also quite like sashimi, diet coke and soul food.

I'm also interested in starting to cook more often. Got recipes? Recommendations? Let me know!

My current favourite musician is Reggie Watts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In my experience, if I decide I can't do without something, it gets taken away pretty quickly.
And then I do without it.

"Man is the creature that can get used to anything, and I believe that is the very best way of describing him."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The pursuit of goodness and happiness, and what constitutes these (goodness being closely related to happiness, or to an aptitude for attaining it), and how to both attain them for oneself and help others to do so in the broadest sense. Happiness can be a bit depressing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably chillaxing on the irc. I'm pretty exciting.

Okay, that's not entirely true. I may well be out at dinner or bars with friends, or watching a movie.

I don't teach penguins to yodel every friday night from 6-7:30 p.m.
But if there were penguins in my area, I would try.

...I just realized this section needs an amendment since I moved here. While it is true that there are penguins in my area, you have to pay people to go see them within business hours of some kind. However, the tour guides do have some rocking all-terrain vehicles that they visit the penguins with. Maybe I could be a bit flexible about the hours of my yodeling lessons. I will have to ponder this.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My biggest fear is falling down an up escalator indefinitely.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you match the personality profile described in my most recent journal.

Or if you have read my profile and, on this basis, are terrified of messaging me but have this strange compulsion to do so anyway, like that feeling where you find yourself staring into an abstract yet unnerving painting, knowing that somehow the abyss is also looking into you, trying in vein to look away and instead finding yourself stepping closer, your fingers inexorably reaching for the "Message" button.
Or if the most disconcerting thing for you about that paragraph was "in vein [sic]". I feel like we'd get along pretty well then.

If you message me "How can you read that bore Dostoyevsky, I had to read Anna Karenina for school and it was awful", expect to be ignored. If you can't understand what is objectively wrong with that statement (quite apart from matters of taste or tact), there may be problems.

That said, I'm not always a horrible elitist. I can be very picky about public displays of stupidity if they're the only thing I know about you. I'm not going to mind if we've been talking for a while before I notice that you can't distinguish between there/their/they're or that you think Shakespeare is something that tribal hunters do to get psyched up.

This is probably a good place to discuss something I've been asked a couple of times recently - what I want out of OkCupid. I'm mostly looking for an opportunity to kill some time on the internet and possibly a chance to meet new people.
I'm not necessarily looking for dates, although if we hang out and it works that way, fine. I still pretty much only message girls through this though, because I feel weird messaging another guy through a dating site. However I'm still pretty much fine talking if a dude wants to message me. I don't see that happening though, as I gather most dudes on here have conversations consisting of "u r hott can i c ur tits lawl".

And no, you can not see my tits.
